Looking good Dave! I?m sure everyone is ready to get in too.
The little things that your CDO (OCD for those that don?t have) is on fire about the rest wont even notice. That?s all part of seeing it all. It?s a beautiful house and will be a great home for you and yours.

Well life is spinning out of control these days but slowed down enough to go find a whitetail. The big one got away when my muzzleloader misfired. Twice.
He would have been a 130-140 buck. Oh well.

This guy didn?t fare so well. It went boom when he came out for his picture.

Sounds like you?ve already decided.
You don?t need the insulated pipe outside. That?s just to keep wooden bits from burning.

Rock wall looks good.

You keep saying and taking pictures of all the rocks, but the pile in the background brings it into perspective. You have a lot of big rocks. And conveniently flat wall building type to boot.

Shawn that?s awesome!
Dave where can I get one of those?

Spent the day removing 12 years of patina from the lower rockers on the truck.
Only surface rust so far which I?m happy about. Found out I?ve blasted through the wheel wells on the outside of both sides...not so happy about that.

Used coarse emery paper as the patina scuffer. I have plans to raptor it last spring (2017 May), so I?ll look after the scratches then.

Did a heavy scuff, rust converter, acid etch, colour match, and clear. Need to make spring and don?t want to look like a complete hillbilly.

Time will tell how it holds up.

Well we don?t have snow on the ground. It?s been snowing off and on for a couple weeks now but warming enough to keep it off the ground.
Now, the shocker for 10 October. The big lake has begun to harden over...
Yeah, ice forming in the bays... that?s a touch early. But many of the larger bodies have been froze over for a week or so now.

Samm, i truly hope you do not live in ka-bec. 

For those of you who have never been to Quebec,  i advise you to never go there.

I have been all over this earth, and dealt with many different kinds of people, but the one nationality that is truly a waste of oxygen is the FARKIN FRENCH !!!!!!

And what makes it worse is the fact that the french canadian fluffers think they are just as wee wee as the oxygen thieves from that spineless country across the pond
Ah Nate. Sorry for your...nah I can?t appologize for those A$$ hats.

Relaxing out at the cabin finally.
Been a long few weeks, still haven?t physically come home from Australia. Been on nights since I got home. So jet lag/whatever the heck it will be now for me...

Tired as all get out and not happy with it all but life goes on.

Looking out the window at the snow showers and glad to see winter is coming back.
Nothing accumulating yet but looks like it could be a long winter.

Hey all. Back from the land of kangaroo.
What a load of catching up I had.
Lots going on so I?ll just say hey.

At the cabin chilling with HH6 and the pups.

Its ok sam, you can admit that momma had to put her foot down.....lol

Not entirely... :facepalm:
But she was tired of blood... :popcorn:

Yeah, another day, another boat ride bleeding. Lol

I?ve stopped doing that stuff. Not a fan of the ER

No anger issues Charles. Don?t even remember how it came to be, just came out one day and has stuck...some people want to foolishly punch them. I know better, and headshots don?t ruin any steaks which HH6 says are tasty.

God had my six this day, nine stitches, no damage other than the not so wee flesh wound.

Don?t use an axe as a hatchet. Your arm gets tired and you lose spatial awareness of the axe head.

Well. Sitting in the airport. YWG. YEG. YYJ. YVR. SYD.

My name was pulled from hot standby to you?re goin boyo!
I?ll be quite possibly silent for next two and a half weeks.

if I could figure out the pressure canning time, I would can some up for you and send it your way.

Yea better not forget to send some this way.
I?d take a jar as well! :beercheers:

Oh no, I have to agree with Ken.
Tool table or drink spot is handy.

That is quite a deal. I?m thinking it could be around 1k in ?towing? if you had to pay.
$250 to replace everything is a pretty good deal too.

Is that going to include the light also?

Dowels vs pipe, won't tear up the finish. I had to use 2 dolly's, one wasn't strong enough or steady enough upright.
Dowels much better idea.
Now the rental dolly looks like the real deal.

Rollers Charles, 3/4? pipe I?m sure you have some around.
Slope the grade if it isn?t to be flush with door, couple planks or sheet of ply and a few chunks of pipe. Roll to location and stand it up.

I just cobbled together 1kw system.
I spared no expense on the inverter, or batteries.
Rest was lowest price found stuff.

Depending on your needs more may be required.

Batteries aren?t cheap and the stupid tax is full price for forgetting water checks.

Don congrats on wedding and pre Rangers.
 Charles told you pipes easy peasy.
Dave I hate painting and have looked like that a time or two myself.
JR enjoy your week.
Mike, I need to go watch some dirt track racin myself.

Now the Sam update.
I?m sporting an apartment freezer at the cabin now. The surplus of energy from perpetual daylight and 1kw of solar says it?s a good idea for the summer. So far so good I think it will be a win.
Mama is there for the summer now so happy wife...
Replaced rattling calipers in truck as one had got so bad it was sticking.
Rolled 427k kilometres second set of brakes now. 267k miles give or take.
Boat finally has functioning automatic bilge pump (yes it has lived in lake six years without)
I got tired of finding water over the floor... :knucklehead:
O shoot, still have to send picture of broken generator.

Smoked brisket at the cabin today. About 10 hours in not quite done but ran out of sunshine. It was at 183 so it was cooked and tender and deliciously juicy and all but not quite as much as it could have been. It looked a lot like the one up a few posts and was devoured quickly.

Rained off and on this afternoon and other than a couple hours before the sun hit the panels the solar ran the smoker without a hitch.

A couple of pipes on rr ties and you could push it almost by hand.
I moved a 2900# shed on grass with a quad. Shed was on 4 x 4? pipes moved quite easy.

I?ve been around Nate. I took on a new job a few months ago. It has made me really busy.
It kind of runs into 24-7 sometimes for days weeks on end.

I?m in the middle of a failed generator repair right now.
Man I miss being on the tools at times like this.
Once I get pictures to this phone I?ll post a couple up.

But I?m still kicking and looking forward to some vacation.

Reactive targets here too.
Took a poke at 700 yards or better with the shotgun. Thought he was 200 ish and I?d give it a go.
Found prints at about 700, 6? across. One big wolf. Now have rifle at my disposal too.

Been busy as heck around here for me.
HH6 on a girls vacation, sonny boy back for the summer, job here not yet in the city.
Ice finally left the lake on the weekend, dock moved on Monday evening.
Spent a few days cleaning around the house for the first time in as many years as we e had the cabin. Man we had some junk to move.
Replaced the floor on my skidoo trailer, fixed (finally connected) the brakes on the car hauler.

Need to measure for timbers to redo the crib for my dock. Supposed to be a low water year so I need to fix it up.
Oh and forest fire season is here too. First one near us today, under control now they say 30 miles away.

Charles, nice truck!
